Shot with Ashley last year, and had a fun night. It is always nice to go through old photos you have taken and see all the mistakes you made while shooting. Currently, I am going through all my photos and trying to get them off of Flickr now. I have so many photos it’s going to take me years.
Tonight I was waiting for the sun to set and head out to capture the transition. I had an area I wanted to fly in, but there seemed to be a wedding so I decided not to fly around the party.
I headed down the road a little more, and started turning off onto roads which looked like they may lead to mystery, and found the Carmel Quarry. Some dirt paths lead to an area, where cement trucks drop their loads or fill up.
The nice part about this area, there are some high grounds, and it seemed as if no one was around. I am not sure if I was even supposed to be in this location, but oh well.
Here are some photos from my photoshoot this morning, I still have 5 other people to run through, but it is always a great time watching the light, and seeing where the light bounces in the subject’s eyes.
Here is my continuation of redesigning some of the X-Force characters. I wanted to test out the regular pencil that is stock with photoshop and actually like it quite a bit. I have never really tried the standard photoshop brushes.
Starting my photography “dear diary” all over again. I can’t count how many times through different services where and how I set up a blog or photography page. I decided to separate my sketches and photos so it would be easier for myself to find what I am looking for.
Hopefully, this will be the last move. A little warp in time through photos. I need to go back and look at some highlights I have had through the years. Many memorable events and a whole mess of experiences.
As I went through a couple of albums of photos, I found some oldies of my children. They are much older now, but as any parent would say, they look the same to me. I believe these photos were taken in 2010.
I seem to say this more often than I should, but by the time I look up from working, it’s already late. I need to get in the routine of dropping work at a decent hour. But most of the time, I find a pixel off here and there, and what I was working on completely changes.
Most days I’m sitting in my chair by 9 am between taking care of emails, basecamp, and checking all my companies social activities it’s already lunch time. After lunch, I am pretty exhausted already from the night before, but try to power through.
From 1 pm 5 pm I am back chair timing, dinner comes, 7 pm strikes and back in the chair. I do have to say it is nice to work from home, not haveing to deal with the traffic. Almost the reason why you won’t find me in the studio.
In the end, I tend to watch my time very close. I make sure that an extra hour spent in the car isn’t wasted, but by nights end I am beaten. Anyhow here’s a doodle from tonight. Stormy weather.
With some horror film, I read about on Twitter today. Looked interesting the moments I took pauses.
Forgot I had sketched last night, woke up this morning to do some spring cleaning. I am trying to break the habit of “stiff sketching” and instead draw loose, and quick. The results are pretty awful, but I am sure in time, it may look better. Let’s say in the year 2050.
Quick sketch from last night, I wasn’t too happy with the way things were heading. Another note, Mischief is almost now my go to sketching application. It’s so fast and fluid, you really can’t ask for more.
If you haven't tried this application you should. I prefer Mischief over Sketchbook Pro.
I have been to busy with work to pump out any doodles. I find that since I work on a computer all day and all night, it becomes hard for me to sit back down and sketch something out.
I love working with my Wacom, but when your mind is clearing with code and design from the day it becomes so hard to just pick up the stylus. I searched around for my old brushes that I had built a couple years ago and did these random doodles.
